Mud Sticks - The true story of a reformed gangster who founded one of the most successful charities in Northern England – George Craig.

as told to Patrick Lavelle

George Craig is a local boy brought up in Sunderland’s East End who has made a positive difference to his community despite being written off as a failure by nearly everyone in authority during his early years.

He has confounded all his critics by establishing one of Sunderland’s most influential charities.

Approved School, Borstal and a long term of imprisonment in some of Britain’s toughest prisons would have demoralised most people ­ but not George Craig.

George is one of the new generation of Social Entrepreneurs: he has established, against all odds, a sustainable social enterprise ­ The Lazarus Centre.

George understood the problems of drug addiction through the personal experience of a family member and refused to be prevented from establishing a much needed facility.

Help was not there for him when he needed it.

So what did he do?

He started a drug and alcohol service with great skill and determination. The authorities that had previously shunned him were stunned when the Centre opened its doors for clients. George had shown by his personal selfless determination that people can do the impossible.
